New three day event, held in Salzburg, Austria in November, combines best of SPAR Europe & ELMF

ELMF and SPAR Europe have joined forces to form a new event – The Capturing Reality Forum  – focused on laser scanning, LiDAR and 3D data capture and modelling technology.

The three-day event, which will take place at the Salzburg Congress, Austria from 23-25 November 2015, will include a conference featuring leaders from all sectors of the industry, and an international exhibition of the latest technologies.

Headed up by Diversified UK, Versha Carter, Group Director, has previously managed the ELMF and ILMF events and successfully launched the GEO Business show.

Ms Carter comments, “We are excited to be involved with the rebranding of these two very established events, which has been received as a very positive next step for the industry. SPAR Europe and ELMF co-located two years ago, but continued to have separate conference programmes. By merging into one, the synergy between the two events and the shared interests, challenges and opportunities will be fully realised.”

Conference Chairman, Alastair MacDonald (Director of TMS International) adds, “If you are interested in data capture and imaging on the inside or outside of facilities, the tracking of utilities and monitoring of transport, or modelling external effects on the national coastline or landmass, the Capturing Reality Forum has all the ingredients of a must-attend event.”

The Capturing Reality team has also announced a Call for Papers and industry leaders are invited to submit technical papers to be considered for presentation. Mr MacDonald explains, “We welcome international papers which will address recent project examples and the key commercial and technical issues but most importantly those that highlight pioneering research and developments that will impact the future development of the industry. Each abstract will be peer reviewed and we will announce the final programme in September.”

Abstracts can be submitted online at: before Tuesday 11th August 2015 and could include reports on subjects such as: Building Information Modelling (BIM); 3D for asset and facilities management; 3D data capture for as-built conditions; point cloud processing; managing and sharing large data sets; 3D/intelligent modelling; augmented reality and visualisation tools; airborne, terrestrial and bathymetric LiDAR; coastal zone, defence and flood plain LiDAR; corridor and utilities mapping; data classification, GIS, data modelling/management; mobile mapping; technology development and trends; and small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).
